How to Make Space Invaders Cookies

Damn Cool Pics

This is a chunk of cookie dough made by extruding individual "pixel logs" out of a Play-Doh machine and stacking them to form a design. Flickr user SeattleJonman has a little picture tutorial if you want to see the process, it's pretty basic.

Laser, 3D Printer, and an Onion, OH MY!

Laser, 3D printer, and an onion, OH MY!

I found this about a year ago and then lost the link before I could blog about it. Thankfully, the gentleman Douglas Repetto sent a link today to the Thingiverse group and now I can share this project’s beauty with you!

It’s a glorious machine that runs on very old-skool early reprap technology. Zach designed and shipped those boards two years ago. If I was an art collector or MOMA, I would buy this. It’s awesome!

This system uses lasers to scan an onion plant from one of three angles. As the plant is scanned a fuse deposition modeler in real-time creates a plastic model based on the information collected. The device repeats this process every twenty-four hours scanning from a different angle. After a new model is produced the system advances a conveyor approximately 17 inches so the cycle can repeat. The result is a series of models illustrating the growth of the plant from varying angles.

Register for the 48 Hour Hackathon!

Don't forget to register for the hackathon! It's totally free, but we're asking folks to sign up so we can get an idea of how many people to expect!

NYC Resistor's first 48 hour hackathon will run from 6pm Friday, Feburary 12 to 6pm Friday, February 14. At the end of the hackfest there will be time to share your projects as well as exciting prizes for the most awesome hacks.

You can work by yourself or with a team, and if you don't have a team/project we'll assign you to one. Projects we've heard buzz about include:

  • Re-enabling the 1930's teletype
  • Building props to do a trivia quiz. Buzzers, lights, etc
  • Subway wifi radio station aka "Radio Free MTA"


The format is open, you're welcome to come and go as you please. We'll keep the Club Mate flowing and follow a loose schedule of demos and workshops to help spark your imagination. PS, interested in giving a demo of some sort at the hackathon? Contact Kelly!

Friday, Feb 12

6pm – 8pm: Intros and whatnot. There's no formal registration, but it would be nice if folks introduced themselves and what they're working on
